Appeal decisions are coming through so thick and fast in Alfold that we haven’t had time to update our sticker map – and today, another housing development is allowed.
Why? Because the Inspector recognised that the borough does not have a five-year housing land supply.
Residents may think Alfold is full, but developers have very different ideas.
Vintners, Guildford Road, Alfold, GU6 8HF. WBC refused a bungalow outside the village envelope in the 1990s – it was Granted at appeal and now can be demolished to make way for nine more homes.
In the intervening years, the house and garages has been a working garage business maintaining and servicing local vehicles! You really couldn’t make it up!
